Fuel Elbow O Rings went south and the bike started pissing fuel all over the place whenever the bowl was full. Of course in order to get to the stripped retaining bolt that was on the carb I had to get the carb out, so apart came the bike.

Working on giving it a good deep cleaning with half the bike taken apart, also sending in the forks to get serviced as the dust seals are gone on one leg.

Also found out I was missing a header bolt, yay?

Ordered the power up kit for the bike, because why not? I already have the carb out. Hoping to get it back together by next weekend.

Not quite today, but sold my Husky 300 & KTM 400 and replaced them with a new FE450.

New bikes are the best!

Get some SSS forks from a YZ or later WR, they rule.

What's the power up kit? De-restriction kit?

Yeah that one, the GYT-R kit that comes with new jets a new needle and the block off plate for the EGR. I am stuck for a week waiting for some other parts so might as well.

Ill check out the SSS forks, will probably just rebuild these for now.

The only tire a sane person would mount A Maxxis Desert IT.

Hey, I'm not sure what oil to use, can I get some Advice from the masses?

On a different note, It is good to see you out on the bikes again!

Do tell...
And for what conditions?

I love my desert tires, even for tahoe rocks and loose silt. Only other rear I use is a pirelli mt trials tire.
